The CDC has been quiet about this thus far, the Alabama cluster is being studied (and we would assume more areas not yet revealed by medical institutes or policy makers)..

According to health officials in Scotland, the leading hypothesis is that the illnesses are caused by an infectious agent—rather than a toxic exposure—and an adenovirus is the prime suspect. The officials note two possibilities if an adenovirus is behind the acute cases: A new adenovirus has evolved to cause severe liver injury, or an existing variant that routinely circulates in children is causing severe disease because they have not previously been exposed to adenoviruses and are immunologically naïve. “The latter scenario may be the result of restricted social mixing during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the officials speculate.

But, there’s also the possibility that the clusters are related to infections with the omicron subvariant BA.2, which is sweeping through the UK and the US, or even a yet-to-be-identified variant. “A novel or yet undetected virus also cannot be ruled out at this time,” the officials wrote.
